Bettina Furnee

Artist, Maker, Art historian, Project manager

Bettina Furnée's practice is rooted in notions of site and language is the primary medium. The work is derived from an interest in the identity, history and future of a given place, and the way in which language relates to a certain position or duration. The work ranges from small text and video works to public art commissions and complex location-specific projects incorporating new media, such as Powerhouse www.powerhouse.me.uk, Reality Rules www.2bok.com and If Ever You're In The Area www.ifever.org.uk. Her time-lapse film Lines of Defence documents the erosion of a text installation on the Suffolk coast during 2005, and is now in the collection of the British Film Institute. Bettina Furnée has first class degree in art history and an MA in public art from Chelsea College of Art and Design. She has a studio at Wysing Arts Centre, Bourn. read full statement
